Use a Magnet to Retrieve Pins and Needles

This one is for sewers, (or if you drop a nail when hanging a picture) whether you have a "bad" back or need to reach into a tight space, this works for me. Stick a magnet onto the end of a knitting needle or yardstick, etc. Then you can easily pick up those pins, etc. that always seem to fall where they cannot be reached.

Although this is a very good idea there is a drawback if you have a computerized sewing machine. The pins will become magnetized and in turn ruin the computer parts to the machine. I know from experience.

I bought a magnet pickup thing at an auto store. Mechanics use it to get screws and stuff from inside motors. It's a telescoping like screwdriver (with a magnet end) and cost .99

I use a magnet pin holder when using any nails, screws, washers, nuts and bolts. anything small and metallic . It sure helps to not lose these items before or while trying to use them.
